Commencement will take place on Sunday, May 22, 2016 at 10 a.m. 

All students who are in a Credential or Degree Program* and expect to complete their program in Academic Year 2015-2016, are required to register for Commencement and pay the $125 Graduate Commencement and Degree processing fee.  This processing fee is required regardless of participation in the Commencement Ceremony.

To complete your program and/or degree, the Graduate Commencement Registration form* must be submitted online no later than Friday, March 11, 2016.  The commencement processing fee will be billed to your GaelXpress account.

*For students completing a Degree and Credential Program simultaneously in Academic Year 2015-2016, ONLY complete one Graduate Commencement Registration online.  You will only be billed for one fee, $125, to your GaelXpress account.

As part of the credential and degree processing, we will run a degree audit to determine if you have registered for all the courses required.  If the audit process discovers any issues, you will be notified by your Program Director.

Note: Participation in the Commencement ceremony is subject to KSOE Program Director approval.  If you are not approved for participation, you will be notified by your Program Director.

Degree Candidates:  After you have submitted the Graduate Commencement Registration form and have met the program requirements, submit your Degree Verification Application form and all relevant documents.  The relevant documents include a copy of your signed thesis signature page or proof of passing the comprehensive exam if required by your program, as well as a final, unofficial transcript and receipt of uploading your thesis or dissertation to ProQuest.
